Nombre OD 100mg Tablet


Overview

Introduction

Nombre OD 100mg Tablet belongs to a group of medicines called anti-epileptics. It is used to treat two conditions, epilepsy and bipolar disorder. It works by blocking the signals in the brain that trigger epileptic seizures (fits) and in another way to prevent extreme mood swings.

Nombre OD 100mg Tablet can be used alone or in combination with other medicines. It may be taken with or without food. Your doctor will decide the correct dose for you. This may increase gradually until your condition is stable. This medicine may take several weeks to work but it is important to take it regularly to get the maximum benefit. Do not stop taking it, even if you feel fine unless your doctor advises you to. You may have more seizures, or your bipolar disorder may get worse.

The most common side effects of this medicine include skin rashes, headache, nausea and vomiting, difficulty sleeping, dizziness, and feeling sleepy or drowsy. Most side effects wear off, but if they bother you or do not go away, tell your doctor. Inform your doctor immediately if you notice a rash or peeling of skin. There may be ways of preventing or reducing these effects. Long-term treatment can cause weakness in your bones (osteoporosis), increasing your risk of breaking a bone.

Before taking this medicine, tell your doctor if you have kidney or liver problems, depression or suicidal thoughts. Also let your healthcare professional know about all other medications you are using as some may affect, or be affected by, this medicine, including contraceptive pills. Consult your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding as the dose may need to be adjusted. You should avoid driving or anything that requires concentration if this medicine makes you drowsy or dizzy. You may need frequent blood tests to check how you are responding to this medicine.
